| Captain with your cunning
defeat of one of two Rebel/Airam Task Forces sent to destroy your warship,
the Rebels have decided to retaliate on the heels of their previous defeat.
Once again the Rebels/Airam have managed to surprise us and have located
the secret Imperial Supply Base in the Talcon Asteroid Field. Somehow the
Rebels infiltrated the base and managed to sabotage the static defences
protecting the base. Right now only a handful of mines stands in the way
of the Rebels causing any harm to the Imperial base. All the Type C mines
can do is hold off the Rebel/Airam attackers for a short period of time.
Your warship, the VSDII Touch of Death is the only ship close enough
or for that matter combat worthy enough the save the base from the insidious
plans of the Rebellion. The Repair Yard BXE-9 was able to restore
your shields, however VSDII Touch of Death's hull has yet to be
fully restored. Unfortunately due to the composition of the asteroid field,
your warship is far too large to manoeuvre in it and it would take too
long for your warship to blast its way to the base. Your orders are to
save the Imperial base from either destruction or capture by the Rebellion.
You must buy the base enough time so its technicians can bring its defences
back online. You don't have to destroy the Rebel Force, just inflicting
66% losses will force them to retreat will suffice. You still retain command
of Hammer (TIE Interceptors, specially equipped with shields) and Anvil
Squadrons (TIE Bombers specially equipped with shields). Note that Hammer
and Anvil Squadrons are veterans. You have been given 4 Stormtrooper Transports.
The Rebel and Airam Task Force includes 2 Nebulon-B Frigates, 4 Stormtrooper
Transports, 12 ATRs, 2 Y-Wing and 2 T-Wing Squadrons. [A Veteran squadron
is the equivalent 2 ordinary squadrons]
